A coma patient has his brain parameters stimulated with flash lights to understand when he is ready to be stimulated, at Sant'Anna hospital in Crotone, south of Italy, December 16, 2014. Under pressure to curb the euro zone's second-largest public debt, successive Italian governments have slashed funding for regions by 10 billion euros in the last five years. Regional authorities in turn have targeted the largest item on their own budget: health spending. In Calabria, where Sant'Anna is located, the health service deficit has fallen to 40 million euros from 250 million euros since 2009. Because cuts are politically difficult, they have hit all of Calabria's hospitals in the same way, regardless of medical or economic performance. That means the Sant'Anna ? whose success rate in reawakening people from comas is nearly 20 percent higher than the Italian average ? faces similar cuts to those in any other hospital in the region.

Wedding and family pictures of Giovannina Caprara, a coma patient taking part in the Oberon project, are seen in her home at Villa Piana di Cosenza, south of Italy, December 17, 2014. Sant'Anna's home-monitoring system uses technology and training of family members to give coma patients the same quality of care at home as they would receive in hospital. It costs the hospital less to oversee a patient remotely than to provide for his or her board at the clinic. Caprara, in a state that Dolce describes as "unresponsive wakeful system," sits in a wheelchair in her cottage adorned with pictures of saints, and she sometimes seems to smile and laugh.

Resident Gloria Lafferty (C) receives a visit from her daughter Cheryl Clark (L) and her granddaughter Nicole Clark at the Colbrooke House care facility run by a private company working on behalf of the local government and housing association in southeast London February 13, 2015. The provision of care for those who can no longer look after themselves but do not require a place in hospital is one of the biggest problems facing the state-funded National Health Service. The involvement of the private sector in critical services remains a contentious issue in Britain after large outsourcers failed in previous high profile contracts.

Myanmar's reformist government is seeking foreign investment to revive one of Asia's sickest healthcare systems. Several leading regional healthcare companies are already operating in Myanmar and others plan to enter soon, seeing huge potential in the country's underserved population of about 60 million people. Attracting foreign investment is part of an overhaul of the healthcare system by the quasi-civilian government that took over from the army in 2011. The administration of President Thein Sein has cut military spending and raised healthcare funding to 3 percent of government spending this fiscal year to March 31, from 1 percent the previous year. As with many sectors, however, private firms say they are being held back by uncertainty over rules for foreign investors. Picture taken November 1, 2013.

The U.S. government began a partial shutdown on Tuesday for the first time in 17 years, potentially putting up to 1 million workers on unpaid leave, closing national parks and stalling medical research projects.
